Tyson Fury’s chances of success against Braun Strowman next week have been thrown into question following an unexpected blow in training.
The former heavyweight boxing champion will travel to Saudi Arabia next week to make his WWE debut against ‘The Monster Among Men’ at Crown Jewel.
The pair’s rivalry began at SmackDown earlier this month, when Strowman hurled opponent Dolph Ziggler in the direction of The Gypsy King and his family in the audience.
After the 6 foot 8 American refused to apologise on the following episode of RAW, Fury initiated a massive brawl with Strowman, which fellow wrestlers struggled to separate.
So, it’s safe to say that the stakes for Fury’s WWE debut bout are pretty high.

With the fight eight days away, ‘The Monster’ has sent a clear statement of intent by landing a heavy blow on Fury during his training session yesterday.
While the Gypsy King practiced his attacks and rope work at the WWE Performance Centre in Florida, Strowman somehow managed to sneak into the training complex unseen.
He then brought his opponent’s workout to a holt by clambering into the ring, and unleashing a shoulder-charge which sent Fury crashing to the floor.
Those behind the boxing great will have been concerned to see him clutching his ankle and writhing in pain, with his experienced WWE rival laughing in his face.
The Gypsy King, however, was quick to remind his worried team of trainers that he won’t be brought down that easily.
Fury soon attempted to shake off the pain by putting weight back on his ankle, asserting to those around him: "I don’t need no medicals, I’ll be alright."
Strowman, who was watching on from the sidelines, then left his bruised opponent with a final ominous warning: "You’re in my world, now."
Of course, Fury couldn't let Strowman get away without calling him a dosser, which is what he did right at the end of the clip.News Now - Sport News
